Nationalism and Cosmopolitanism in Avant-Garde and Modernism: The Impact of WWI

Nationalism and Cosmopolitanism in Avant-Garde and Modernism: The Impact of WWI

This workshop follows up on discussions that were initiated at an international symposium in Stockholm: The European Artistic Avant–Garde c. 1910-1930: Formations, Networks and Transnational Strategies (11–13 September 2013). It focuses on one particular aspect of the avant-garde and modernism, namely, the clash therein of the national, the transnational and the cosmopolitan. In the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, but to some extent in Scandinavia too, the struggle for national independence, which in most cases began in the 19th century and culminated during and after World War I, had important cultural and artistic consequences. The symposium will track the changes in and compare the nationalist rhetorics in modern and avant-garde art just before the outbreak of WWI, as well as during and after the war. After 1917 the map of Europe changed dramatically. A number of new, independent states were established, and these developments found expression in every genre of the visual arts and transformed the image of the continent. The papers presented in this workshop focus primarily, but not exclusively, on modernism and the avant-garde in Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltics and Scandinavia. There are also papers that describe the dissemination and translation of avant-garde language in regions and countries at the fringes of Europe.
